Grrrr…..

January 31st, 2007

Let’s sum up Tracy Chapman’s “Toys To Knit,” shall we?

No gauge given on patterns. Garments can come out badly sized.

Example: these are supposed to be pants, not hip waders.

Poorly phrased instructions lead to confusion on garment construction.

Example: armhole that was apparently supposed to be a neckhole.

No diagrams or detailed pics of finished items to show how to assemble.

Example: elephant man head.

Summary. Pretty pictures do not a good pattern book make. Avoid! Avoid!

Hats up for: New Zealand, New Zealand, and New Zealand.

    The no gauge listed thing still mystifies me. WTF?

    What amazes me…

    What amazes me is that even with crap instructions, it still turned out to be cute as a button!

    This is why when I get around to making my doll, I’m gonna buy clothes. I’m too lazy and not smart enough to figure out how to adjust a pattern like this! 🙂
